Music Theory 1: Musical Symbols Worksheets


A basic keyboard knowledge is helpful for any student learning music, whether it is vocal, or instrumental. Studying a treble or bass instrument (violin, tuba, etc.), requires a knowledge of one clef – treble or bass clef. Learning how to read both clefs broadens a students understanding of music. An in depth study of music theory enhances a student’s knowledge base and makes them a better musician. Not only do they understand how music is written but their practice and performing is enriched.

This packet can be used to teach 8 and older students. Every student learns at their own pace – what works for one may not for another. Each packet builds upon the previous one with constant review pages at the end of each packet.
